You will hear a great deal of mythology about Ford front ends. What ever you do, DO NOT listen to anyone who says you must cut and weld the I-beams. This will weaken and ruin the suspension. Similarly, if anyone says you have to heat the I-beams and bend them to align he front end, find a shop that actually knows how to align F series trucks. It is done with replaceable cams, adjustable sleeves and bushings.
The worst bike ride of my life - May 3, 2003. Fifty miles, uphill through rain and sleet on a mountain bike for MS. I loved it. Came back three more times to make a difference.
This year: from Irvine to Oceanside to San Diego - 156 miles ridden with $3380 raised to help fight Multiple Sclerosis. Thanks guys!
